Sample Ultralight Gear List

Gear Model Weight Notes
Backpack Osprey Exos 34 960g (2 lb 2 oz) Narrow pack. I wish for the same with less curvature to the pack, though still with internal frame (perhaps the gregory optic 48 or rei flash 45). Waterproof X-Pac or Dyneema material would be nice. I like this earlier Exos 34 model with the front hip belt pockets and less overall pack volume.
Backpack (alternate) Gossamer Gear Murmur 36 354g (12.5 oz) Lightest pack.
Backpack (budget) 3F UL Trajectory 35 670g (1 lb 7 oz) Narrow pack. Internal frame. Design needs some styling tips. There are some very detailed videos in many languages.
Tent Big Agnes Fly Creek HV2 Platinum 822g (1 lb 13 oz) Full Mesh inner, Free Standing, Vestibule
Sleeping Pad ThermaRest NeoAir UberLite 250g (8.8 oz) Air mattress with 2.3 R value
Sleeping Bag Aegismax Mini 800FP Goose Down 408g (14.4 oz) Prefer separate down hood for wearing at camp. Warmer hoodless models discussed on Reddit thread, with overview in figure below. Mini and M2 sleeping bags are sewn through while Nano and Nano2 include box baffles. The Nano and Nano2 have waterproofed down, which perhaps results in the lesser fill power of 700 instead of 800.

Total Weight: 2.44 kg (5 lb 6 oz)

Update: I defer to Matt Shafter who has a lot figured out. While you won't make a lot of the choices either of us makes, his knowledge and choices are admirable:
